Were you one of the lucky 825 people who were able to submit an application for the Safe Room Rebate Program today? We tried, but unfortunately the portal was already closed by the time we were able to get online. In a press release issued today, the NCTCOG states they will reopen the portal in approximately two weeks so people can be added to the waiting list. In an interview that Molly Thoerner, the director of emergency preparedness for the North Central Texas Council of Governments, gave on WFAA Channel 8 (click here for video clip), she explained that limited funding is being provided to North Texans and even if you were not able to receive one of the initial rebates, they urge people to get on the waiting list so they can provide information to the state and FEMA to show the demand and hopefully get additional funding for future rebates.
Please help us in spreading the message so we can get as many people as possible on the waiting list so we can help get more funding!
